Don't miss the start of Series 2 of MISSION IMPROBABLE, written by and starring the fabulous Boom Jennies - the first episode will transmit tomorrow (Wednesday 28th May) at 11pm on BBC Radio 4:
Jane Roberts' (Catriona Knox) career in journalism has stalled. Wanting a high-profile, hard-hitting crime column in which she revives and then solves long since given-up-on cold cases, all she gets offered is the chance to review a spa in the Himalayas for a minor fitness magazine.
Lucy (Lizzie Bates) is delighted and desperate to come along in order to lose weight for her forthcoming school reunion. Amelia (Anna Emerson) is in too, as she is desperate to see a real life tiger in the wild. So a reluctant Jane and her excited companions head for India and find themselves in a yoga class.
Inevitably Lucy falls heavily and inappropriately in love with their highly bendy instructor and tries to get him to notice her by noisily running through a series of stretches directly in his eye-line. Jane is also intrigued by him too. She recognises him from somewhere. When all this attention spooks the instructor, he makes a run for it and the team set off in hot pursuit - a pursuit which will see them journey on trains, in a rickshaw and into an extremely close encounter with a fully grown tiger.
Produced by Dave Lamb and Richie Webb, a Top Dog Production for Radio 4.
